Re: pxeboot_ia32.bin boot.cfg support how to?

Herewith my dhcp.conf.

On the client PC, when I press a key at the pxeboot_ia32.bin countdown
screen, and
type "load miniroot.kmod <enter>", then "boot tftp:netbsd <enter>",
it all works i.e. the G4U help screen is displayed as it should.
Only I can't get the boot.cfg file loaded to automate the G4U booting.

Would it be possible to send me your bootconf enabled pxeboot_ia32.bin
file i.e. the one that you mention in ?
